Company ASFALT

Startup ASFALT from Solothurn is launching the ASFALT LR e-bike. ASFALT LR weighs 19kg and boasts a minimalist design. The e-bike is equipped with two batteries (2x252Wh), which are fully integrated in the bike frame. The seattube battery is removable, so it can be charged at home or in the office. You can choose to ride with one battery or two. The level indicator for the batteries is also integrated in the frame, negating the need for an additional display. What’s more, the e-bike has a fully integrated standlight feature. The aim was to create a pure, sleek design, without compromising on range, flexibility and the practicalities of charging.

Jury Statement

This Swiss-made cycle makes no compromises on either quality or materials. Overall finish, attention to detail, craftsmanship of the joints and integration of the cables are all excellent. Thanks to the modular design, one of the two batteries can be removed to reduce weight for shorter trips.
